Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri calms Pedro shoulder injury fears

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri calms Pedro shoulder injury fears

Morata shrugged off an attempted embrace from his manager and trudged towards the away bench, after another wasteful night in front of goal. In this match, he had three or four opportunities.

Maurizio Sarri made a decision to leave out Eden Hazard and Mateo Kovavic, although he still fielded a strong line-up that included the likes of N'Golo Kante, Pedro, Willian and Jorginho.

"Alvaro has to gain confidence with one, two, three goals", head coach Morata said. "I am not able to give him confidence".

Sol Bamba's 16th minute goal in the game ended up being a mere consolation as the west London club came from a goal down to clinch all three points in that encounter. With two goals in two matches.

Both sides continued to pressure either sides to find the back of the net but the visitors have been decent from keeping the hosts from leveling up with just seven minutes to the blast of the final whistle. For the first time in this season, he was ready in the box.

'I think we were in control of the match for 90 minutes, ' he added.

"Chelsea have a lot of quality but if we play with the same intensity and concentration as we did against Everton, then who knows? The doctor told me that probably it's not a very serious injury". It is not a big problem now because we have played only six matches but in the future it may be a problem.

That will not reassure Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Gary Cahill, who are yet to start for the Blues this season.

A scheduled flight from Thessaloniki to London was cancelled after weather warnings, meaning Chelsea will return to Cobham on Friday afternoon - less than 48 hours before they are due to face West Ham United in the Premier League on Sunday.
